Sacrament Preparation for Children and Adults
Baptisms for children newborn thru age 7 are held throughout the year during regular weekend masses.
The first step in scheduling a baptism is to attend the Baptism Orientation class held on the second Wednesday of each month at 6:30 pm.

Students in the second grade and above can register to prepare for the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Sessions begin in September with the actual celebration of the sacrament in December. See the First Reconciliation tab on this website for more information.
RCIA for Adults and Children
The RCIA for Adults "Journey in Faith" is a process of sacramental formation for those who are interested in becoming Roman Catholic. Sessions begin formally in September, the sacraments of initiation are celebrated at the Easter Vigil and ongoing faith formation continues through Pentecost.

The RCIA for Children is for students ages 7 and above who have not been baptized. Sessions begin in September and are held on Sunday mornings. Children receive their sacraments at the Easter Vigil along with the adults. Contact the Family Catechesis office for more information.
First Communion and Confirmation
Students in the third grade who have completed First Reconciliation can enroll to prepare for these two sacraments.
The Diocese of Phoenix celebrates the Restored Order of the Sacraments of Initiation, therefore students will receive confirmation prior to First Communion.
See the First Communion/Confirmation tab for more information.
